FAQ

Should I attend In/Visible Talks?

Yes. We want you here. Our goal is to have a multidisciplinary conversation about what really goes on inside the creative process and to strengthen the creative community through the sharing our stories.

How can I submit a talk or speaker idea?

In/Visible Talks are original content and focused on the creative process. Our audience works in more than one medium and your talk should appeal to a diverse, multidisciplinary audience.

Speaker suggestions can be sent to info@invisibletalks.com with a brief bio, topic idea, links to past talks, and anything else that you think would be helpful for us to know. We review submissions on a rolling basis and finalize our lineup by September of each year. Due to the volume of emails we receive, we cannot respond to all submissions but will do our best to get back to you.
